for clarity, this code is meant to illustrate the issue. i started with a
full scanner/parser and trimmed down the guts to isolate the issue. when
running with and without the "core" bits (which perform similarly under .NET
and mono), the magnitude of the performance difference is similar.

memory allocation is the bottleneck in this case.

are you saying that the mono/linux is optimized so that memory allocations
are faster than mono/windows? (this is helpful, if true.)
